The view and location are phenomenal. The food was delicious and more than plentiful. The staff at the resort very nice. Vegan food was no problem at all, there was even soy milk for the coffee. The only criticism was our guide. She hardly communicated with us, didn't explain anything and in general we had the feeling that she didn't want to. She also argued with us because she insisted that we had only booked one day without an overnight stay and she was not very solution-oriented, when we arrived at the resort she just left us. The next day when we left, she forgot us again, there was no boat available for us. Here, too, other guides or the resort staff had to avoid our return transport. Too bad. On an otherwise absolutely recommendable trip!

Wonderful experience. We spent a lot of time on a longtail boat, got the best views, had some sparkling wine and snacks provided for, took a kayak in the middle of the lake, and returned just before nightfall. In my opinion, the sunset on this tour is the best thing I’ve seen in Thailand. Highly recommend.

Amazing tour - the transportation service was incredible, on time, and dropped us where we needed to go. The tour was wonderful, our guide Pei was very knowledgable and super nice. The resort itself was wonderful. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the natural side of Thailand

This was the highlight of our trip to Southern Thailand. Highly recommend.
